Pet of the Week: Annie

Meet Annie, the latest Pet of the Week. Annie’s human moved to assisted living and couldn’t take her along, so now she’s looking for a new home with a soft bed for naps and someone who’ll take her on slow walks.

Here’s what Annie, a senior Westie, shared through her friends at Westie Rescue of the Mid-Atlantic States:

I need a really soft bed to snooze in. I love slow walks and exploring the outdoors. I like sitting on a front porch watching everyone come and go. This way I get to bark at the big dogs. I am a very good-looking Westie with GREAT fur and a pretty face. I like a good neck and cheek scratch on your chair. I walk well on a lead; I like to meet other dogs, and I like people. I am VERY attentive. I like to play with humans and my toys for 20 minutes, then sleep for two hours. I come when called… well not so much… but I sit on command, and I am house trained unless my bladder is way too full from drinking too much water. I like to snooze in a dog bed, too. I sleep soundly so you will need to clap your hands to wake me. I like to be near you. I have a few quirks, but who doesn’t when you get older?

I am currently with Uncle Stephen sleeping in his home office in Northern Virginia. I sleep a whole lot. Did I tell you I have great fur, and I need a big doggy bed, and if you touch my muzzle or startle me I might nip you? Well, I was told to be upfront about myself. I like Uncle Stephen a lot and he can do almost anything to me as he is in charge around here, and I want to suck up to get some treats and go for walks!

Call and schedule a visit today! There is only one of me, and I could use a new bed!
